Here's a veteran, identified as U.S. Marine Sergeant Shamar Thomas, confronting New York Police Department officers during Saturday night's protests to ask them why they've been arresting Occupy Wall Streeters instead of defending the right to protest. A valid question! "How do you sleep at night?" he asks them. "There is no honor in this."

An alternate video of Thomas appears on the Facebook page of Occupy Marines, who say they'll "support demonstrators with organization, direction, supply and logistics, and leadership." Wonder how right-wing pundits will shoehorn military vets into their "OWS protesters are anti-American communist hippies who stink and poop on cop cars" mantra. Can't wait to see what they come up with.
